Corbyn is not seen as a potential Prime Minister by Labour voters
A YouGov poll found when asked who would make the best Prime Minister, 13 per cent of people chose Corbyn while 51 per cent chose May.
The Labour leader’s figure is the lowest since May entered Downing Street as the Prime Minister enjoys the biggest lead she has had, at 38 percentage points.
The YouGov poll for The Times put support for the Tories at 43 per cent, up two points on last week, with Labour on 25 per cent, unchanged, the Lib Dems on 11 per cent, unchanged, Ukip back in fourth place on 10 per cent, down two, and others on 10 per cent.
The figures coincide with a Sky Data poll that found half of people were “happy or very happy”, about leaving the EU with only 36 per cent claiming they feel sad.

The poll will worry Corbyn who has been given 15 months to convince voters that the party can win power by Len McCluskey, the leader of Britain’s biggest trade union Unite.
The union is Labour’s biggest financial backer and has nearly a million and a half members, all closely associated with the Labour Party.

Corbyn has also been accused of attempting to derail Britain’s EU divorce after demanding a guarantee for “unfettered access” to the European market.
Despite the Prime Minister already ruling out remaining members of the single market, the disheveled Labour leader insisted leaving it would threaten jobs in the UK.

We are very clear that there has to be unfettered access to the European market
Corbyn told ITV’s Peston on Sunday: “We’re very clear that there has to be unfettered access to the European market, otherwise the threat to jobs in this country is absolutely huge.”
Tory MP Philip Davies hit out in response to the Labour leader’s comments. He told The Telegraph: "He may be trying sabotage but it would be futile sabotage as we are either leaving with a deal or leaving without a deal.”
